Benessere Capital Acquisition Corp. Announces Record Date for Stockholders to Vote in Favor of Extension Amendment

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 8, 2022 / Benessere Capital Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:BENE)(NASDAQ:BENEU)(NASDAQ:BENEW)(NASDAQ:BENER) ("Benessere" or the "Company") announced that its board of directors has set the close of business on June 3, 2022 as the record date (the "Record Date") for Benessere's special meeting of its stockholders (the "Special Meeting") to be held to approve a proposal to amend the Company's charter (the "Extension Amendment") to extend the date by which the Company has to complete a business combination from July 7, 2022 to January 7, 2023 (the "Extension").

The Company's stockholders of record at the close of business on the record date, June 3, 2022, will be entitled to vote the shares of common stock of Benessere owned by them at the Special Meeting. A proxy statement relating to this special meeting has not been finalized or declared effective. Once final, a definitive proxy statement will be mailed together with a proxy card to Benessere's stockholders and will include the date, time and location of the special meeting.

If the Extension Amendment is approved and the Extension is implemented, the Company's sponsor will contribute to the Company's trust account an aggregate amount equal to $0.033 per share of Class A common stock issued in the Company's initial public offering that is not redeemed, for each calendar month (commencing on July 7, 2022 and on the 7th day of each subsequent month) until January 7, 2023, or portion thereof, that is needed to complete an initial business combination (the "Contribution"). Such Contribution will be made as a loan that will not accrue interest and will be repayable to the sponsor or its designees upon the consummation of an initial business combination. If the full six-month period of the Extension is needed, the Contribution will increase the pro rata portion of the funds available in the Company's trust account in the event of the consummation of an initial business combination or liquidation from approximately $10.35 per share to approximately $10.55 per share.

The Company had previously announced a June 3, 2022 record date for its special meeting of stockholders to, among other things, vote on the proposed business combination (the "Business Combination") among Benessere, eCombustible Energy LLC ("eCombustible Energy"), BCAC Holdings Inc. ("BCAC Holdings"), a holding company formed for purposes of effecting the Business Combination with eCombustible Energy, BCAC Purchaser Merger Sub Inc. and BCAC Company Merger Sub Inc.
